Dallas restaurants serving take-out Thanksgiving 2023 dinner to-go
Among the legacies left by the pandemic is the to-go phenomenon. It's not that to-go did not exist before the pandemic. But it's far more pervasive — encroaching even upon traditional meals that were once-sacrosant sit-down affairs such as Thanksgiving dinner. It's not very sustainable, we're despoiling the planet with our crappy takeout containers. But everyone wants the fancy meal, and nobody wants to sit still for it.
To that end, here's our list of where to get Thanksgiving 2023 to-go in Dallas. With few exceptions, most of the restaurants listed below are closed on Thanksgiving Day which this year falls on November 23. Open-on-Thanksgiving-Day hours are noted in italics.
For those willing to still dress up and behave, we have a separate list of restaurants that are open for business on the holiday and ready to serve good old-fashioned civilized sit-down meals. God bless.
